This fascinating, in-depth look at China's new and rapidly changing role in the world focuses on the critical choices China must make to ensure sustainable economic growth. All signs show that China's diplomacy is facing unprecedented changes, among which opportunities and challenges coexist. As power is redistributed globally, China finds it is at a crossroad. By comparing possible modes of the rise of great powers, Re-Constructing China introduces the necessity of China's peaceful development and growth and explains how the nation can achieve it in the most effective way possible. China is attempting to become a great power of a new breed and in its development must maintain sustained economic growth and explore a revitalization of its cultural confidence. James Lovelock, originator of the idea of Gaia, makes an argued plea that we must change our way of life - before it is too late. Illustrated with examples drawn from his experiences around the world, he draws many radical conclusions, most controversially a passionate advocacy of nuclear energy. Master the essential skill set of the truly effective leader The Leadership Journey charts a course through four critical areas of being a great leader. Written by Korn Ferry CEO Gary Burnison, this book brings world-renown people and talent development expertise to bear in a discussion about 'good' versus 'great' leadership. Successful leadership at any level is about getting results, but how do the best of the best manage to consistently deliver bigger and better things? This book shares the 'secret sauce' of successful leadership, and provides an actionable framework for discovering-and developing-your own leadership skills and potential. Anyone can have the right hands-on skills, but true leadership finesse lies in the much tougher realm of developing self-awareness to lead yourself first ('Look in the Mirror'); navigating by a fixed point of personal and organizational purpose ('Embody Purpose'); journeying with others who want to follow you ('Don't Walk Alone'); and plotting a course that's beyond the line of sight of what everyone sees ('Navigate Beyond the Horizon'). By distilling the broad and complex topic of leadership into highly accessible points and discussions, The Leadership Journey is perfect traveling companion for everyone along the leadership path.
